For real horse people, “A Good Horse is Never A Bad Color” is a statement of fact. Some novices pick horses because of their color. The real mind and soul of a horse is not about its color. In an imaginary world, artists can portray horses as they wish – beyond real. Enjoy them in this show.

This month’s group show focuses on non-domestic animals. The show will include exotic as well as native wild animals. Patricia Hunter’s realistic style watercolors, of various African species, become very contemporary through her unorthodox compositions. The great physical strength of Greg Dye’s wild bison is portrayed in his thick pallet knife paintings that are contemporized with vivid wild hues. Timothy chapman invents hi own wild species. Ron Russon’s portrayal of wildlife has a subtle hint of native spiritualty combined with bold contemporary colors and lines. These artists as well as work by several artists will be displayed.
Opening Reception: March 2nd, 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Opening: March 2nd, 2017

Some artists strive for realism when portraying animals, others go for fun and the imaginary.
Sarah Webber is an artist who can achieve a visual sense of realism when painting her subjects, but her titles take the renderings beyond just the visual, to establish a short story caught in time. In her painting called “Leap of Faith, Sarah gives the viewer the sense of a optimism as the bunny hops into the unknown. “Two Times the Fun”, shows two burros, caught giving their attention to a subject off canvas, and captures their sense of anticipation of what is to come.
Trevor Mikula deals strictly in the imagined. His painting style is honed to an economy of brushwork and details. The colors are yummy, and the subjects huggable. Animal Kingdom features all styles and interpretations of our wonderful world of animals. Artists include Ron Russon, Jaime Ellsworth, Connie Townsend, Chaille Trevor, and many more.
Reception: February 9th, 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Opening: February 2nd, 2017

It would not be the “Old West” without critters. Most iconic are mustangs, burros, coyotes, and bison to name a few. Whether domestic or wild, the west conjures up visions of all sorts of fauna. Animals were crucial to the lives of Native peoples and western settlers, and they are still valued and enjoyed today, in our new west. Artists participating include Sarah Webber, Sushi Felix, Chaille Trevor, Bill Colt, Theresa Paden, and more, with a special introduction of our new artist Cathy Carey.
Sarah Webber will be demonstrating her painting skills during the February 9th reception in the Annex gallery. Join us for light refreshments and watch talented artist Sarah Webber paint a masterpiece before your very eyes.
